The process of founding Anchor University billed for September 2012, but suffered a huge setback as the representatives of the NUC coming for final inspection and approval of their multi-billion projects were in the ill-fated Dana Air crash. Professor Celestine Onwuliri, husband of a serving minister and an executive director with the Nigerian Universities Commission was among the over 157 victims that died in the Dana Air crash which occurred on Sunday, June 3, 2012. He was the leader of the team. Construction began in 2013. The University was founded in 2014 by Deeper Christian Life Ministry. It was approved by the Nigerian University Commission (NUC) on Wednesday, 2 November 2016.
